Volcanic soil, sedimentary rocks with mixed types of immature sand, pyroclastic rocks and trumaos volcanic ash. Deep soils with high biological activity. In the first few centimetres of the soil, the loose and permeable are separated then they begin to mix with the clays further down.
Futrono, situated in the Chilean Patagonia, 904 km south of Santiago, is strongly influenced by the lake, which generates thermal uniformity given its proximity to the Andes. It has an average rainfall of 1800 mm with an average maximum temperatura of 18.5 degrees from January to May and an average minimum temperature of 9.3 degrees from January to May .
In 2006, following their pioneering spirit, the Silva family planted their first vineyards in Futrono, 904 km South of Santiago, between two mountains of the Andes, on a hillside that sloped towards Lake Ranco. This innovative decision brought Casa Silva to be the first Chilean winery to produce wines from their own vineyards with the Designation of Origin “Austral”, in such a remote Southern Region.
